Polishing the Hearts

There is no doubt that hearts becomes rusty just as copper and silver coins become rusty. The polish for [this rust] is the dhikr of Allah. 
Hearts become rusty due to two things:
1) neglecting remembering Allah, and 
2) committing sins. 
The polish for these two things is:
1) seeking Allah's forgiveness and 
2) dhikr.
[Imaam ibn al-Qayyim]
